The Oloid is a desk sculpture that merges science & art into one solid piece of molten metal. Think the T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgement Day, only this sculpture won\u2019t intentionally kill you.\r\n\r\nThe Oloid is an intriguing and widely unknown geometric shape with amazing mathematical and aesthetic properties. It's hypnotic motion and flawless-smooth texture make it a great tool for stress-relief and concentration as a unique object that unleashes creative thinking and mindfulness.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Oloid's incredible shape is the perfect conversation starter. So when someone asks, you can tell them it was discovered in 1929 by German sculptor, inventor, and mathematician Paul Schatz. Every point of its surface touches the plane on which it\u2019s rolling. It\u2019s also made in a furnace heated to 500 degrees Celsius.\r\n\r\nEven though its shape is curved, the Oloid rolls in a perfectly straight line. It has sharp edges, but its motion is gentle and smooth. Its surface is developable, meaning it can be constructed from a flat sheet. It has incredible functional properties; the Oloid shape can be used for water treatment, as a propeller in navigation, or as a stirrer in biotechnology. Then close with the Terminator fact. It\u2019s guaranteed to impress.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nYou can own the Oloid or Oloids and use them in any way you please. They are currently available through Kickstarter with options for brass, stainless steel, and copper finishes \u2013 brushed or polished. Shipping is expected December 2017 unless, you know, Judgement day.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many? You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
